Hello! It has been way too long since I've added to my blog, my apologies. So with that I introduce the lovely Linda Tran whose recent bridal session inspired me and I want to share with you. With her hair and make-up meticulously styled by Kevin Truong she was a vision of angelic beauty.
There are few locations in San Jose that offer such beautiful and diverse scenery as the Ranch Golf Club, With its lovely arches and well manicured landscape it's a perfect place for a glamorous Bridal shoot.
I chose to shoot this entire set with a Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM. This lens is incredible for detailed shots and renders color so beautifully. With its wide aperture I am able to easily create the depth and separation from the backgrounds that I love. Yes, being a fixed focal length it requires a lot more footwork than a zoom lens but I feel it's very much worth the extra effort.
In harsh mid-day sun many photographers have a difficult time producing pleasing balanced images. As a Wedding Photographer I do not have the luxury of choosing the time of day and position of the Sun. Because of this I pushed myself to study light and create a technique that allows me to give my clients the best possible images at any time of day or night.
Photographing in entirely natural light is truly an art form unto itself. I do this by focusing on my subject and precise placement in conjunction with the backgrounds.

When I am working with a client my goal is to see and capture their character, I really want to see that sparkle, that glimpse of their personality that can be preserved in an image. It's about my subject and I do all i can to see and make the session a personal experience.
Hair & Make Up truly are truly the foundation to a successful photograph. Here you can see the fine skills of Stylist Kevin Truong.
